Dated: 400-344 BC Thessalian horses, noted for their beauty and courage, are believed to have been oriental types brought to Greece by the Scythians. Alexander the Great's horse, Bucephalus, was originally from Thessaly, Pharsalos. The Thessalians branded their horses with different symbols: horses from Larissa with a centaur, those from Pherai with an axe, and those from Pharsalos with a bull’s head..
